My Worst Nightmare... Has Come True

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
How many parts should I be RMAing?





Just the graphics card? Gfx card and PSU?

Will EVGA give me trouble about physical damage? The card hasn't been overclocked for a few months. Just when I thought I was ready to fold again...

Hmmm, that's odd. Can you test to see if the gf card works? Are those extensions or actual sleeved cables of the PSU?

My thoughts exactly (along with much sadness). Everything was flawless until this morning when I woke to a 124 BSOD while folding all stock 285.27 drivers. I rebooted and no video.

EDIT: They are the PSU cables but it's 100% modular. The system has been running since July.

Pull those two sleeved pins out, I wonder if they shorted inside of the connector.

Definitely the GPU and probably PSU if it is not modular, because that PCI-e Connector is shot. though it looks like the physical damage to the GPU is not that bad they probably won't give you too much of a hassle. Though I have to ask How did this happen?

That's what I'm thinking.

That sucks. Its possible if that were the case that the GPU is not damaged besides the burnt pin. At least its only 12VDC, I've had connectors short internally with 5000VDC now thats quite a show (Radar Trans-mods).

I am concerned about warranty denial from Corsair for two reasons,the sleeving on the cable (they did not like that I modified the heat shrink on my HX 850) and the physical damage to the connector.I seem to remember that physical connector damage is listed in "reasons for RMA denial". I have a Corsair power supply that has a connector much in the same shape as yours and I am taking a picture of it and sending it to them, no sense in spending money for shipping if they are going to deny my claim.I am concluding that the power supply is the one listed in your sig.

EDIT: Perhaps the 100% modular construction will mean that they never see the cable,good for you.

Maybe neither; possibly the PSU, but I doubt the graphics card. Just try replacing the cable, and see if your card boots right back up.

I'd recommend changing out the PSU though, in case there's something faulty with it.

Errr....



The connector is 100% compartmentalized. They'd have to get hot enough to melt through plastic before they would be able to short?
